Nice score

I hope you have a wonderful experience at Harvard. :) I'm retaking in December. Have any suggestions on prep-books? Have an opinion on Kaplan's LSAT 180 book?

It's a pretty bogus story -- there's another writeup of it that talks about the main source and pretty much devastates his credibility. Still, a great story. Thanks, and good luck to you! I hope you get the notice you deserve, looking at your profile.

I would love to go to UW. I live about 2 miles away from the law school. Unfortunately my LSAT is shit so I don't have a chance. I am still perplexed about how anyone can score a 179. That is really something to be proud of.

Congrats!

:-D Wooo...

Congratulations, and two quick questions

Hey, congratulations on the acceptance! I have two questions for you though. It would be awesome if you could answer them. I got a W on my transcript (non-punitive, non GPA counting,) Did you have any Ws on your transcript, or do you know anybody that has one or more and will it affect my acceptance into Harvard, Yale, etc? (Considering I get a high GPA and a high LSAT? (E-mail me or leave a message with the answer in my profile) Also, if you dont mind, could you tell me how you prepared for the LSAT?

Harvard v. Hamilton

I too am having plenty of trouble deciding, as I'm sure you saw on my profile. But I visited both schools and just got a way more positive vibe off of Harvard. Maybe it was just the expertise of the Harvard staff at hosting an admissions weekend, but the student body seemed incredibly engaged and very very enthusiastic about Harvard. Plus, the facilities are so much nicer there, in my opinion - though I'm used to a very lovely suburban campus, so I think I'd feel pretty cramped in a single building in Morningside Heights. The (admittedly few) students I met at Columbia seemed more focused on just getting through and a little more stressed about their post-law school futures. As a comparison, I had two tour guides, both of whom were going into large firms after their graduation. But the Columbia one seemed pretty embarassed about it and indicated that the debt was essentially forcing him into it, where he might otherwise prefer to do public interest. The Harvard guy, on the other hand, was interested in governmental work, interned on the Hill, and decided that he thought the opportunities were actually better for non-profit after working for a firm for a few years and the sort of training it gives you. And he made very sure to stress Harvard's top-notch public-interest funding/LRAP. Two people at the same place, but with totally different mindsets. Anecdotal, obviously, but I'm not sure what else we have to go on. On the other hand, I am a little worried about Harvard's size; the law school will actually be bigger than my undergrad. And of course, money money money. *sigh* It's not easy to throw away that kind of cash. But at this point, I'd say I'm 80-85% Harvard leaning. (Unless, of course, Yale comes through. *eyeroll*) Best of luck with your decision - hope things work out for you either way, and please let me know what you're thinking!
